Get Six Pack Abs Sooner With Isometric Exercises

You need to do isometric core exercises to get your six pack abs. This is a surprise to many people. Isometric core exercises build up the deep stabilizing muscles and give tone to your entire core area. Isometric exercises help you build strength and burn fat without moving much.



Isometric exercises are very underrated. They are great for building muscles, stabilizing muscles, building strength, improving power and burning fat.

Isometric contractions can be described as a type of muscle contraction where your muscles develop tension without changing length. For example, pushing against a wall and holding for 30 seconds causes an isometric contraction.

You should strength train your muscles with all contraction types (eccentric, isometric, concentric). All muscles function eccentrically (reduces force or deceleration), isometrically (stabilizes force) and concentrically (produces force).

Isometric exercises force most if not all of your muscles to work during an exercise. The stability ball plank exercise (pictured above) is a great example. To do the plank, you get into position and hold for a period of time (like 20 seconds). So, many core exercises are great isometric exercises.

So, here are some other good isometric core exercises to help build your six pack abs:

1. Bridge, 10 repetitions, 20 second hold
2. Pushup and Hold, 20 second hold
3. Captain Chair Knee Ups and Hold, 10 repetitions, 10 second hold
4. Ab Curl Ups and Hold, 10 repetitions, 20 second hold

Now "hold on" and do your isometric exercises to build your six pack abs!
